We are pleased to announce that Adafruit Industries will act as a global reseller of our software EAGLE.Adafruit, one of the most important businesses for the Maker and DiY (Do It Yourself) segments, will be an asset for CadSoft to better support this growing segment.
Thomas Liratsch, Managing Director of CadSoft Computer, explained: “We have defined the DIY and Maker space as one of our key segments – not only recently, but two decades ago when CadSoft was born. As the DIY, Maker and hacker scene is becoming extremely popular and important, we continue to look for opportunities to support this market and drive innovation. Adafruit is a well-known and established company, focusing on exactly this customer group and these goals, and we are very pleased and looking forward to our expanding relationship.”Phillip Torrone, Managing Director of Adafruit Industries, added: “In our opinion, adding the CadSoft EAGLE PCB design software to our portfolio is just the next logical step. Our company founder Limor Fried – in the maker scene widely known as LadyAda – has been using EAGLE since her early days of designing PCB’s, and it is still her tool of preference. This collaboration with CadSoft enables us to offer our customers another indispensable tool when it comes to the design of electronics.”Adafruit will start by offering EAGLE Hobbyist, Standard and Professional licenses.
